Lung & Respiratory Conditions

We treat a variety of lung and respiratory including acute respiratory distress syndrome, asthma, emphysema and lung cancer.

Lung Testing

Pulmonary function tests (PFT’s) are non-invasive breathing tests done to measure how well the lungs perform.

Allergy Skin Testing

The Scratch Test, also known as the prick-puncture test, is one of the most acceptable methods of allergy testing. 

Comprehensive Medical Examination

We believe in the practice of preventative medicine to ensure better health. Unfortunately, as adults, we sometimes forget to take care of ourselves.

Lung Testing

 

Pulmonary function tests (PFT’s) are non-invasive breathing tests done to measure how well the lungs perform. More specifically, these tests are used to:

  • Measure your lung volume, the strength of your diaphragm and the airflow to & from your lungs.
  • Compare your lung function with standards that show how well your lungs should be working.
  • Detect narrowing in the airways.
  • Diagnose certain types of lung disease (such as asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema)
  • Find the cause of shortness of breath
  • Measure the effect of chronic diseases like asthma, chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD),
    or cystic fibrosis on lung function.
  • Identify early changes in lung function that might show a need for a change in treatment.
  • Measure whether exposure to chemicals at work or home affects lung function
  • Check lung function before someone has surgery
  • Assess the effect of medication
  • Measure progress in disease treatment

These non-invasive breathing tests are done during one appointment, and most often can be done on the same day as your medical consultation. You will be asked to breath into a tube that is connected to a machine. Our PFT technician will give you specific instructions on how to do these tests. It may take an effort to do these tests, and you may become tired or light-headed. To get the most accurate results from your breathing tests:

  • Do not smoke for at least 1 hour before the test.
  • Do not drink alcohol for at least 4 hours before the test.
  • Do not exercise heavily for at least 30 minutes before the test.
  • Do not wear tight clothing that makes it difficult for you to take a deep breath.
  • Do not eat a large meal within 2 hours before the test.

Some medications should not be taken before the test. Please check with us prior to your appointment.

Allergy Skin Testing

The Scratch Test, also known as the prick-puncture test, is one of the most acceptable methods of allergy esting. A small amount of allergens is placed under the skin surface to check for reaction.  Testing can be done for different allergens at the same time, and results are usually obtained within 15-20 minutes. Note: Avoidance of allergens could potentially prevent further progression of diseases including Nasal Polyposis, Chronic Sinusitis, and Asthma with recurrent exacerbation and other irreversible disease.

Our tests are fast, reliable and painless, and can be used both to diagnose and to monitor the benefit of treatment for respiratory problems such as asthma. Some of the allergic triggers tested include:
